Go Hiking in Balboa Park (and Score a Hole-in-One View)

 

FUN SAN DIEGO DATE IDEA: Go Hiking In Balboa Park | DATEOXYGEN.COM

 

You’ll begin this date at a hidden classic American diner with cheap eats and a priceless view. Just outside is the trailhead for a 4.5 mile off-asphalt urban trek that will take you through Golden Hill and South Park, beside a golf course, through the Morley Sports Complex and hiking in Balboa Park until you end up right back where you started. Highlights include a hole-in-one view, several architectural gems, a couple of off-leash dog parks, stellar city views and, if you’re really lucky, the music of a thousand birds.

 

  • WHERE: South/Balboa Park
  • VIBE: Eat & Drink, Active
  • INVESTMENT: $
  • WHEN: Morning, Afternoon
  • HOW LONG: 2-4 hours, 4-6 hours, 6+ hours
  • MEAL: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch
  • DRESS: Sporty, Grunge
  • DOG-FRIENDLY: Yes (partial)

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Fuel up on classic diner fare and views at…
    The 19th Hole (Tobey’s Diner)
    2600 Golf Course Drive
    San Diego, CA 92102
    619.234.5921
  2. Walk along Golf Course Drive toward South Park until you see the sign for Trail #22 on your left (just before 28th Street)
  3. Continue to follow the signs until you’re hiking in Balboa Park and end up back at…
    Golden Hill Gateway Trail
    2590-2596 Golden Hill Drive
    San Diego, CA 92104

ICING ON THE DATE:

Bring a blanket and a mini-bottle of wine for a little mid-trek toast and chill.

DATE TIPS:

  • There are two confusing spots on the trail…1) Just after the first off-leash dog park, follow the signs for Hike #23 until you see the Hike #22 signs once again; and 2) walk straight through the second off-leash dog park toward the back right corner where you will once again be reunited with the Hike #22 sign.
